I bump into this today when I check in to MARTS website. And this is what I found out.


HamFest in Kuala Lumpur. This fest is organise by a group of ham members. If will be at following place and time as below:

This is the 1st time of Hamfest conducted in Kuala Lumpur. The purpose of the hamfest is to give awareness and exposure of two way communication via radio in UHF, VHF and HF.

Several Government bodies such as PDRM, JPAM, BOMBA, ATM and also SMART will be setting up their exhibition booth surrounding the KL Tower.

There will be talks by company that is famous in producing excellent Amateur Radio unit such as Yaesu, Kenwood and Icom. Really? Hope the manufacturer able to display their latest unit here. Then is a worth to go and visit.

The activities will be held during the fest will be introduction of radio communication, communication in VHF and HF frequency, Dipole setup and also technical of navigation and also how to read and interpret and how to use the paper map and many more of activities to give you depth view on radio communication and importance of radio communication.

If you nuts about HF communication, take this opportunities to learn about Ham Radio from this Hamfest.

I wonder they have special call sign for this special occasion? I love to get them on HF on 10M band!

Apple iPhone4
iPhone 3G or the new one iPhone 4 encounter RF issues claim by most of the users - Long Story HERE, most of the RF radiates is from Antenna. I thought Nokia is the only phone maker has this issue? To solve this issue with Apple phone, Apple is serious recruiting RF engineer to solve it's antenna design and construction.

kangsterizer writes at Slashdot
"Sometimes, news items are just about a good laugh. You may or may not like Apple, but the way it has been handling its antenna issue has been like a small tech soap opera — Steve Jobs, the CEO, saying 'not to hold the phone that way,' rumors of software issues, and the latest but most crunchy part, since the antenna issue has been widely discovered, on 23 June, several 'antenna engineer' positions opened up at Apple. Seems someone got fired: Antenna engineer job position 1, Antenna engineer job position 2, Antenna engineer job position 3." I just figure they did all their testing in California, where AT&T dropping calls is as common as $4 coffees.

Anyway nice phone! to pricey over here in Malaysia!


This is the result of the Round 16 play from Jun 26th to Jun 30, Country listed here is using Ham Radio prefix...!

Country Score Country
Uruguay CX 2 1 HL Korea Republic
USA W 1 2 9G Ghana
Germany DL 4 1 G England
Argentina LU 3 1 XE Mexico
Netherlands PA 2 1 OM Slovakia
Brazil PY 3 0 CE Chile
Paraguay ZP 0 0 JA Japan
Spain EA 1 0 CT Portugal

Being born to Asian country, I supported South Korea and Japan team. Both team did not make it to quarter final round and overall I'm satisfy with their performance. Both team play well and defend well. From the two team play, Japan is the most dramatic match to me. They withstand up to full time and follow to extra time and finally they loose out at the penalty - Good Game!

More dramatic match to come at the Quarter final, play off start from Jul 2nd up to Jul 4.
